Dollar reaches a nexus as death cross points trend downward for foreseeable future

Back in March, the dollar was the most wanted currency in light of the Greek crisis, and ongoing currency wars raging between dozens of countries.  In fact, the U.S. reserve currency was perceived as such a safe haven that it sat at over 100 on the index, with nations moving large amounts of their currencies into the dollar to hedge themselves from local and geo-political turmoil.

Increase in bank ATM fees is just another way to wean Americans off cash

Despite the fact that since 2008, where banks have had almost unlimited access to 'free money' through the Federal Reserve's discount window, their balance sheets have been short liquid capital since most of this borrowing has been used to build a network of paper assets and derivatives.  And because of policies that now see very little cash being kept on hand in local bank branches to support customer need ...

It appears that the Fed is now done propping up markets as S&P 500 hits its Death Cross

It has been 10 days since the now famous Federal Reserve interest rate announcement, with the markets having reacted as if Janet Yellen had not said a word.  For in the past when the Fed spoke of raising interest rates, a decision to keep them near zero had always resulted in a new sweep of buying that brought the markets to new all-time highs.  But after equities reached their apex in back mid-May, more th ...
